The Lynn News has welcomed a new colleague to its ranks who has taken up the position as media sales manager.

Scott Young, who has worked in media sales for more than 20 years, started in the role at the beginning of the month and will manage the team of media sales consultants for the Iliffe Media-owned Lynn News and Fenland Citizen titles.

Scott said: “This is the chance to put local press back where it used to be.

“I’m looking forward to the new chapter for the Lynn News and Fenland Citizen.”

Having led teams for 10 of his 20 or so years in media sales, Scott is ready to take on his role and will become a well-known face when he accompanies consultants in the field.

Scott said: “I will be working closely with commercial and editorial to make sure readers and advertisers get what they want.

“My role is to grow the market but also to make sure that we are producing product that is loved by customers and advertisers alike.

“I’m looking forward to meeting customers and clients.”

Scott, who lives locally, has had links to West Norfolk for a number of years and said he has served the area for a long time.
